I’m honored to be giving a talk to the NYC Sierra Club Photography Committee this evening at Lincoln Center in Manhattan. I’ve been a member of the Sierra Club for years, and support their mission and goals in terms of conservation and alternative energy. It was a great surprise to be invited to speak their photo cub-chapter last year at the 2011 Photo Plus expo, but due to scheduling issues, I haven’t been able to actually make it happen until now, a year later.
They’ve actually had some really amazing photographers as speakers, including Ruth Orkin, Jay Maisel , Robert Glenn Ketchum, John Paul Caponigro, Jon Ortner, and Steve McCurry, so I’m fairly intimidated to say the least. But like everything else in life, the best approach is to be yourself and bring whatever unique qualities you can to any situation. I’ve given that bit of advice many times, so it’s only natural I should adopt it myself, which is what I’ll do tonight.
Thank you to the Sierra Club and also to all of you for the support to be able to do what I do, and share it as well – that is a true privilege.
